Hi everyone, just to let you know that I have been featured at Midnight Reads!
If you want to check out the interview, you can view it by [clicking here].
The question that everyone was asked this week was:
If you could "unread" a book, which one would it be? Is it because you want to start over and experience it again for the first time? Or because it was THAT bad?
The immediate answer that comes to my head in response to this question is The Catcher in the Rye by J.D. Salinger. If there is one book that I hate with a passion, it is The Catcher in the Rye. Hate it. I do partly blame myself, as I had high expectations for the book and was very excited to read it, but when I did it was just... awful. I don't actually wish to 'unread' it because it was awful though, but rather so that I can experience it again and see if I feel any differently to what I did a couple of years ago. Since it took me so long to trudge miserably through it the first time, the thought of re-reading it makes me groan, but I really do want to know why it's a classic and why so many people love it. It's just one of those books where I really can't understand why it's so highly regarded. I really just couldn't stand Holden and his whining.
